Black History is American History: An Evening of Prose and Poetry
Al Young is the former Poet Laureate of California. His many books include poetry, novels, and memoirs. “The Drummer Omar: Poet of Percussion,” his poetic tribute to jazz great Omar Clay, will appear in Best American Poetry 2016. A memoir of his decades-long friendship with poet Denise Levertov is featured in biographer Donna Hollenberg’s forthcoming Denise Levertov in Company (University of South Carolina Press). Also forthcoming from Al Young: 22 Moon Poems, October Variations, and Love Offline. Young is Distinguished Professor in California College of the Arts’ MFA in Writing program, San Francisco.
Audrey T. Williams moved from Raleigh, North Carolina, to Oakland in 2010. She believes in the power of truth- telling, sharing personal narratives in pictures and words to show the bigger view of how society is operating at any given place and time. Her book-in-progress, Chutney and Chitlins: A Mixed Race Family Memoir, sheds light on Black American life prior to the Civil Rights Movement, through her father’s experiences. For more about her projects, visit www.audreyTwilliams.com.
Nick Johnson was born and raised near the brackish Chesapeake Bay but now calls the Bay Area
waters home. He believes that words and water have more healing power than we can ever know, and hopes his words can travel across the oceans that divide. His poetry has appeared in such journals as Cincinnati Review, sPARKLE&bLINK, and Black Renaissance Noire. He also edited, with Toyin Odutola, the anthology Ouroboros Vol. 1, which features the visual art and literature of twenty-two up-and-coming Bay Area artists. Johnson’s new book, music for mussolini, is forthcoming from Nomadic Press. Learn more at his website, www.nickjohnsonpoetry.com.
Vernon Keeve III left his birthplace in Virginia, but the South has never left him. Keeve’s work has been published in Ishmael Reed’s Konch magazine and in Black Girl Dangerous, and he was a featured reader at the San Francisco Jazz Poetry Festival. An MFA graduate from CCA with a masters in teaching from Bard, Keeve also earned the Zora Neale Hurston Award from Naropa University, where he learned “what Amiri Baraka said loud and clear: A writer is an observer, a soothsayer, but we must also be soothing the problems, or we will just be singing a lovely tune as the world burns.” Keeve teaches high school in Oakland and is Director of the Association of Black and Brown Writers. His book, Conversations With a Southern Migrant,comes out this year from Nomadic Press.
